As a wedding and event planner, I often make magic happen behind the scenes. But today, I wanted to share some details about me and what it is like working with Weddings By Loukia! I have been honored to plan weddings at some of the most incredible venues around Switzerland for couples from Europe and all over the world. My team and I work hard to ensure that every event is well designed, planned, and catered to.
I Started Creating At a Young Age
My love of design started at a young age. I used to love to illustrate and wanted to be a children’s book author and poet. I first got inspired to be a wedding planner after watching the iconic movie “The Wedding Planner” with Jennifer Lopez. As soon as I saw it, I was hooked! It combined everything I loved into one job. It lets me be creative, work with people, and make spaces come alive!
I attended Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne
I continued to pursue my dream at University, where I attended Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne, one of the best hospitality schools in the world. While in school, I also worked at Louis Vuitton. After my job there, I had 11 pairs of Louis Vuitton heels (that I still wear today!).
Baking, Cooking, And Design Are My Passions
I love baking, and any occasion is an excellent occasion to make something sweet! In fact, if I weren’t an event and wedding planner, I would be a baker or interior designer! I love to create unique environments that touch on every sense. From visual layouts to delicious smells and everything in between! I cook dinner with my boyfriend almost every night (but at his place since he has a dishwasher!). And while I shop for groceries, I am constantly inventing new recipes to try.
I also love to spend time crafting at home and doing furniture restoration. Many of the furniture pieces I have at home, I restored myself! And if I’m not cooking, baking, or creating, you can find me watching Gilmore Girls – which I’ve watched at least five times!
I Am Devoted To My Clients
As an event planner, one of the most important parts of the job is gaining the trust of my clients. It’s such a big day, with so many moving pieces, and my couples want something they can trust with every single detail. One of the things my clients love most about working with me is that they feel like they are the only couple I am working with.
I love to give the best customer service and make every couple feel special and well served! To do this, I make sure to ask lots of questions, listen to every idea and dream, and work hard to tie it all together. I create moodboards throughout the process so that they can fully see the final vision. This way, I can add my special touch, but still keep it to their design.
